Alexei Gordin

Young Estonian visual artist Alexei Gordin is the winner of the 2017 Young Painter Prize, dedicated to young Baltic artists. The exhibition features the works created by Gordin during the period of residency in SomoS studios, in Berlin, as part of the award achieved.

In his works, he employs different media such as drawing, photo, video, performance although his main focus is on painting, by which he explores the problematic sides of contemporary liberal society, through ironic narratives and frequent use of antihero figures. One of the topic frequently represented is the social role of the artist and its connection with the market, raising questions about the state of art and its conventions.
